a.k.a. processes.

seriously, the whole idea of time sharing OSs was about having
different users that don't trust each other.

No. I wanna be able to spawn Python and RPC it to Lua from within Java (because good luck combining python and java in the same process).

This is a bit more useful:

- system() works fine for binaries within your own app.
- every app can have its own web interface, be it my media player app, my file browser app, or any of my chat apps. (because they already do, just not on port 80 yet.) - and so on. an app could even be a whole OS if it wanted to, since they would be fully isolated.
